  • Visual inspection and performance tests
  • ESD electrostatic discharge tests including air and contact methods
  • Radiated, RF and electromagnetic field immunity tests
  • Electrical fast transients and burst immunity tests
  • Surge immunity tests
  • Conducted disturbances induced by RF fields
  • Voltage dips, interruptions and variations
  • Ripple on dc power ports
